Dolly Sen

Dolly is an award-winning writer, artist, performer and filmmaker. She has had 10 books published, been nominated twice for a Dadafest Literary Award (2006 & 2007), and won several awards for her poetry. Her subversive blogs around art, disability and humour have a huge international following. Since 2004 she has exhibited and performed internationally. Her most recent projects have been a digitally commissioned work for Short Circuit and the Brighton Digital Festival, where she gave an ordinary website a psychotic episode and changed its programming forever, and the creation of the popular Madvent Calender for Christmas 2014.

As a child Dolly Sen was an alien in Empire Strikes Back. She knew then she would never know normal life. Dolly is an award-winning writer, artist, performer and filmmaker, which has taken her up a tree in Regents Park, to California’s Death Row, to the Barbican, Tower Bridge, and up a ladder to screw a lightbulb into the sky. None of this would have happened if she believed diagnosis and psychiatry defined her.

Dolly brings her ‘bedlam’, using poetry, art, comedy and sheep to show that the DSM is no way to talk about human beings…or sheep!
